Question

# A 1,175-kg car is pulling a 275-kg trailer. Together, the car and trailer have an acceleration of 2.00

m/s2 in the positive x-direction. Neglecting frictional forces on the trailer, determine the following. (Indicate the direction with the sign of your answer. Assume forward motion is along the positive x-axis and upwards is along the positive y-axis. Assume the trailer's weight is entirely supported by it's own tires.)

(a) What is the net force on the car (in the x-direction) ________N

(b) What is the net force on the trailer (in the x-direction) _______N

(c) What is the magnitude and direction of the force exerted by the trailer on the car

magnitude_____N

direction_______

(d) What is the resultant force exerted by the car on the road?

magnitude?______N

direction ______ in degrees
